Big East scraps its intraconference transfer policy

NEW YORK (AP) — The Big East Conference has eliminated its intraconference transfer policy, allowing athletes to transfer within the conference without losing a year of eligibility.

The decision was made by the league's board of directors and announced Thursday. It takes effect immediately.

The old policy had been in effect for roughly two decades.

The Big East says athlete transfers in all conference-sponsored sports will be governed by NCAA legislation.

A new NCAA policy allows players to transfer once and be eligible to play immediately.
